Shut it Scholes! Wenger hits out at ex-Man United star

first_img Mesut Ozil Arsene Wenger has hit back at Paul Scholes after the former Manchester United midfielder accused Mesut Ozil of ‘going through the motions’ at Arsenal.Scholes has suggested the club’s record signing lacks the motivation to win a league title, but the Gunners’ manager claims the ex-England midfielder would have loved the chance to play alongside the German superstar.Wenger is adamant Ozil has been a major success for the north London club since joining them from Real Madrid and will prove his critics wrong.Wenger said: “A player like Paul Scholes would have loved to play with Mesut Ozil.“I believe it’s a wrong statement about Ozil. He works very hard and he’s a great player.“I believe he has the quality, he puts a lot of effort in to help the team and he works much harder than his style shows. You can be cheated a little bit by his style of play, because he is fluent, easy, subtle and he does not look like he puts the effort in, but he does.“I knew he had a good physical potential, but did not know how good he was physically. He has a huge physical potential.” 1last_img
